Basement Jaxx's 'What A Difference Your Love Makes' EP is now out

Remember when I wrote about the new Basement Jaxx single "What A Difference Your Love Makes"? And then about the lovely latin-tinged b-side "Mermaid of Salinas"? Well, the EP (also titled What A Difference Your Love Makes) featuring both tracks and then three remixes of the former is now out! On their Facebook page the duo also encouraged their fans to spread the word:

Which is obviously exactly what I'm doing now. Not only the sharing part of it, but also the other thing: dear readers, oh "What a difference your love makes". It would be rather pointless to write a blog if I had no readers, wouldn't it. If a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound? Similarly, if a blogger writes blog entries and no one reads them, does it make any difference? Well, with your love, it makes. So thanks again for reading the blog, and remember: if you like what you see, feel free to share with others as well.

Alright, enough with sappiness and on with it. The EP has three remixes of the title song. The first one, by Miguel Campbell, is a groovy disco version of the original that resembles Daft Punk's current music style-wise. The Huxley remix is much more urban in sound and sounds like something you could hear at an underground club in the middle of London. The third one is not a remix as such but rather an extended version of the original and is pretty much what you'd expect from an extended edit: it's essentially the same but in larger quantities, clocking at 6:00. Most importantly, it's a wonderful thing that the EP actually features also something else than just the standard remixes - b-sides are getting rarer and rarer these days! So yeah, that's about it, go to iTunes and enjoy! Now, if only we could get some news about the album itself...
